Today we had planned a lazy day doing nothing but strolling around some town centres and do some window shopping with one of Jim’s aunts. The day started with a great breakfast: water chestnut cakes, sweet potatoes and oolong tea. Then jim got some photos to look at and then we got into town for lunch. We killed some time and then met another aunt for viewing her new apartment. As I am still a bit out of sync with the current time zone I decided to have a power nap before we met up for dinner and dessert. Dinner wasn’t too impressive, the dessert tasted interesting – it was made of toad. Now we are back at the grandmother’s place and I am feeling already tired again. Attached some pics from during the day.

Yesterday midday we arrived in Hong Kong, took the bus and the taxi to get after almost 20h after leaving home at jim’s grandmother’s place. Since then I mostly remember food, meeting more relatives and sleeping. Today we had an invite for dim sum for breakfast, then curry fish balls, roast pork, fried tofu and soup as ‘light’ snacks before dinner where we had a chicken hot pot with goose intestines, thin sliced beef, loads of vegetables, more fish balls, frog legs and more… Most plans made for us so far are meet up’s for dinner and other meals. As much as I love to discover new flavours and kitchens I hope this won’t continue like that all holiday ;) attached there are a few pictures from dinner, I am especially proud of the battlefield left afterwards, we apparently enjoyed dinner a lot…
